Textbook Return Policy:

A receipt is required for every return.

During the first two weeks of the term, any textbook for the current term may be returned for 5 weekdays following the day of purchase. Beginning with the third week of the term, texts may be returned or exchanged for 3 weekdays following the day of purchase or with a signed drop/add slip until five weeks from the start of the term (10/16/2006). After October 16, 2006, we cannot accept any returns, even with a receipt.

Both new and used textbooks are returnable. New textbooks must be returned in mint condition (e.g. no highlighting, handwriting, tears, or other marks on covers or pages).
Wrapped textbooks or bundles are often not eligible for return if opened. Check before

Textbook Bookstore Website: if you return a pre-ordered, discounted textbook from the bookstore website, the 5% discount on the remaining titles for that particular class will be forfeited.

Non-Textbook Return Policy:

All items are eligible for return within 30 days of purchase with a receipt. Items returned after 30 days or items returned without a receipt are not eligible for return.

Items must be returned in original condition with original tags or wrapping intact. Items returned without original wrappings or tags, or items that have been used or washed prior to return, will not be accepted for return.

Items received as gifts without a receipt may be eligible for exchange. Items must be returned in original condition with original tags or wrapping intact, and must be returned within 30 days. These items will only be accepted as an exchange for another item.

If you have received an item or size different than the size you requested on your order (i.e. if the bookstore sends you the wrong item), or if your order is damaged in transit, you may send the item back to the bookstore and the bookstore will reimburse you for your shipping costs.
